I’m going to stop thinking that my mom will be coming home any day. It seems to jinx things up. Every time someone has thought she would be able to go home, a doctor pops up and wants to keep her there. They just like her so much! Well actually it’s her blood pressure. They don’t like the fact that it’s still high, and she still has a little more pneumonia stuff in her lungs. So they’re keeping her for another week.
We were both upset about it yesterday morning, but now we both feel better realizing that they just want to make sure she’s strong and as healthy as possible before they can send her home.
She’s been moved down to the physical therapy ward so that she can strengthen her legs. Now she has a room mate, so it doesn’t seem so lonely. I had dinner with her yesterday, and she said that she overhears some funny things during the day. One thing she heard, which you wouldn’t normally hear anywhere else but a hospital, was someone saying, “I just need your urine!”
Anyway, so that’s where it stands. I will just say that I hope she gets better soon so that she can finally go home.
